I blogged about her first Cardinal Pin back in kindergarten, so I knew I had to blog about her second Cardinal Pin. My daughter’s school has an advanced reading program where the kids earn points for reading books and then taking comprehension tests. There are incentives for the number of points they accumulate in a school year, and the first level of achievement is the Cardinal Pin (school’s mascot). The tally resets at the end of the school year, and she will start over accumulating points next year in second grade. She’s hoping to get 11 more points before first grade is over so that she can get a trophy and go a party at the end of the year. If you made it this far, thanks for listening to a proud mommy brag. LOL!
